I waited, but it didn't reappear.
The current version of Fvwm in CVS is 2.66. I don't remember the Pager issue, but I guess it could be fixed. Did you submit a stack dump? I can set up a Schedule test, but it sounds like it's going to take a couple of weeks to recreate the problem. I don't see anything in the current code that would cause a problem. I suggest you start with running something current. -- Dan Espen
